The team responds to the Pokémon Go craze, taking your suggestions to create an improved Pokémon Trainer experience. Ben, Felix and Karen join forces to design and build a smartphone wrist mount for your iPhone or Android handset that will help you to catch ’em all. Thanks to Autodesk Fusion 360, designing a 3D model of the smartphone carriage is easy. Felix builds the battery charging and power management to ensure your phone has enough power on the go since the app otherwise drains the battery rather quickly. But, this extra hardware needs somewhere to sit. Karen steps in to help, with Ben using her as a hand model to demonstrate the design for the battery holder, phone carriage and blinking lights (an important detail for showing everyone which team you’re affiliated with). Still, working with fabrics isn’t as easy as it may seem. Want to make your own? You can find the build files at the element14 Community, where you can suggest your own project and interact with the team.
